Running head: Atmospheric Issues 1
I am here to inform you that the largest employers in Sparksville have relocated to South Korea. This has damaged the city’s economy and displaced workers. Sparksville is working hard to find a industry that will stay and replenish the employment loss. Sparksville has three companies that want to open up in our town; an oil refinery, a hybrid car factory, and a Warehouse distribution center.
Impact and pollution
These companies will have an impact on the communities’ indoor and outdoor air and will contribute to factors of water pollution. The first option is a oil refinery company which will have a significant impact on the environment with point source pollutants. The company does have a solution to the air pollution with state of the art machinery. The refinery ...view middle of the document...
They have low emissions with company vehicle checks every five thousand miles. The final option is the warehouse distribution center. This company shows the least amount of risk to the community. There is a minimal environmental impact on the outdoor and indoor pollutants if the proper building materials are used and following practices for building they will cut back significantly on certain pollutants. They warehouse will have trucks coming back and forth to make deliveries which will cause some concerns. Although this may cause a minimal amount of water pollution it will cause air pollution. The warehouse will be using 18 wheeler diesel trucks which are highly known for polluters.
Air and water Pollution
Air and water pollution come from vapor and or evaporation. There is another process called combustion which is the major contributor. Combustion brings about the burning of fossil fuels and other products made up from them.
A possible solution for maintain water and air pollutants are: The new vapour recovery system and green plantation scheme. According to ProQuest the new Vapour recovery controls can achieve new levels of air quality. The device activated carbon fibre cloth and electrical energy to obtain and recover air pollutants that are in the atmosphere. The green belt plantation scheme can be used as a process to examine the nature of pollutants, emissions levels, and impaction zone.
As Mayor I choose what I believed would offer employment opportunities with the least harm caused to our community. There was a lot to considerer with the health risk, economic increase, and the rebalancing of the ecosystem. I choose the distribution center for many reasons employment opportunities and the best for balancing the ecosystem but know we have a large area of land to build on for future opportunities.
